hurricane sandy, the superstorm, has done to states, so many states, destroying lives and property and leaving people without power for days on end. well, multiply that many times, mr. president, if it were a deliberate cyber attack that knocked out the electric grid along the entire east coast. that's what we're talking about. that is the kind of risk that calls us to act. we have heard from the experts over and over again that this vulnerability is huge and escalating. we know that the number of cyber attacks that have been reported to the department of homeland security has increased by 200% in just the last year. and those are just the -- the attacks that have been reported. that's just the tip of the iceberg. undoubtedly, there are many more on our critical infrastructure that have not been reported. we know that there have been attempts to probe the security of the computer systems that run some of our natural gas pipelines. this problem is very real and it is not only a threat to our national and homeland security, it is also a threat to the economic prosperity of this count
needs in this nation. >> host: do you foresee a hearing on sandy and its affect? >> guest: i anticipate -- i'm not sure if it would be necessarily at the federal level. but i know in terms of this -- i'm pretty confident that there will be some assessment. normally on a state-by-state level. again, looking at and evaluating and making pronouncements is what we can do better. there will be hearings. i'm not sure if it will escalate to the federal level. >> host: thank you, mignon cyburn and paul kirby. this is the tremont on c-span2.

and washington is because of sandy. we had studio issuescome the sore little patch together for this "in depth" with kenneth davis. your most recent "don't know much about the american presidents" is about the american president and you talk about a couple elections. i went to took about 1800 the election of james k. polk versus henry clay. you compare those talking about how vicious they were. is today's election, the current fund we are red, vicious compared to the ones we just talked about? >> guest: no, it's probably more general and person if you look at some of the things said. for instance, going back further to 1796, the first contested election when john adams in thomas jefferson, that the teacher is 20 years earlier, who had combined to really bring the declaration of independence into being were now fierce political rivals. they had maintained a friendship of sorts as jefferson served as vice president, with the result affiliate presidents and vice presidents elected back then, something that changed soon after. jefferson and adams had begun to form what were the beginnings of the t
repeat the question. go ahead. >> [inaudible] >> the impact of hurricane sandy on the election; great question. >> well, our polling showed that there was an impact -- our final poll showed obama with 57% and romney with 47%. we had a dead tie a week earlier. so, the only intervening event at that time was sandy come and obama about 70% approval for his handling of the situation. a plurality of romney supporters also approved. i think in the end it was modest. i don't think it really ticked one way or the other. i think obama had been edging a little bit ahead even prior to the hurricane. i think the last two debates obviously not as important as the first. it never is. but, you know obama had not only stemmed the momentum following the first debate, but also i think had developed slightly a little bit of his own. i think in the end it probably helped him. certainly the atmospherics and the symbols of chris christi embracing him on a well-known republican helped him i think was on the margin pretty much. might have felt in the popular vote of northeast. we did see a big swing for obam
they will never know that right. when we filed the case, christine sandy, the lead plaintiffs in that case, they were just entering high school. they're going to graduate in june. their moms still are not married, so we have to tell this human story. as often as possible because that is what america cares about. and we have to be smart and strategic about how we get these victories and how we get them as fast as we can. but always remembering why we fight. i can't be more eloquent than you just were. >> you are talked about the coalition before the work that was done in this election. how do you see our role as lgbt people in working on other issues and where do you see that play out? those benefits that don't always get that. >> you are absolutely right or good something that patrick was talking about there. it's very important and if you look at the fiscal cliff we are all talking about, sequestration and you look at, if we don't come to a sensible resolution here, all people including lgbt people, right, it's often silly when we have these discussions. lgbt people aren't part of the com
, there was that cnn story during that awful hurricane sandy week about how the new york stock exchange was under three feet of water, of course it wasn't true. it wasn't true at all. cnn got that story now from one of its reporters. cnn got the story from an online message board on the national weather service's website. so they got a line, three feet of water, new york stock, and they put it out. i want to take on cnn because it could've been done by somebody else, too. but that to me is one of the dangers in trying to retain a best standards, some practice, someplace where you can turn and say this is the right way of doing things, and this is simply wrong. and they have the impression these days despite all of the good things that you have said about all the curators and whatever, all that stuff being said, i am left with an uneasy feeling, that i don't know where all the information is coming from. i don't have a feeling that, remember years ago when we knew every cameraman who was taking pictures of some big event in cairo? we knew exactly, joe with cbs was taking the picture, and you knew that i
